Join us for coverage of the keynote address from Juniper NXTWORK 2019! We will be providing live blog coverage of all the news and announcements as they happen.
Redesigns in wireless are done more for compulsive than technical need. When a new access point comes out, the entire wireless network doesn’t need a redesign, other than to satisfy the need to tinker for those managing them. We discuss if and when a redesign is actually needed, why you need to consider what’s driving your wireless refresh in the decision, and how to put a monetary value on defining a “pointless” redesign.
When you’re hearing a briefing from a IT company, it’s easy to get bogged down in new features, architectural changes, and value propositions. What often gets lost when taking a high level overview is the actual implementation and living with a solution long term. Jake Snyder does a great job illustrating the licensing morass that […]
Jake Snyder of Transmit Failure comments: One of the guiding principals of the my wireless career has been to engineer wireless networks that meet my customer’s goals. In order to achieve this, I had to break down some of the complexity of RF design into rules to help myself design wireless networks. This is not […]
Jake Snyder of Transmit Failure comments: In networking, I find myself looking at certain features of wireless equipment and asking myself under what circumstance would I implement this feature for a customer. I try to come up with a list of Pros and Cons as to when it’s appropriate. One that popped up recently was […]
Jake Snyder of Transmit Failure writes: I know there are a few delegates out there who weren’t overly enthusiastic about Avaya’s very network-centric presentation and wanted to “Get to the Wi-Fi.” But one thing we sometimes forget is that there is no Wi-Fi without the underlying network for that data to run on. I honestly […]
Jake Snyder of Transmit Failure comments: So I’m sure everyone has noticed that the blog has quieted down a bit since #WFD6. I could tell you that work’s been busy, that I’ve completed my CCIE-W (#43153), but those are excuses. I will put some more focus into the blog for the next few months as […]
Jake Snyder of Transmit Failure comments: We are literally days away from the 7th installment of Wireless Field Day. I’m really hoping (borderline begging) to hear a couple vendors talk about their Software Defined Network (SDN) solutions. Now before you hop on the “Shut-up about SDN” bandwagon, here’s why I see this as a hot […]
Jake Snyder of Transmit Failure comments: There’s a lot of talk in the industry about getting away from VLAN segmentation and relying on stateful firewalls at our access-layer edge to govern control over what users have access to. This is a great idea, it solves issues with IPv6 and it simplifies network design. But there […]
Jake Snyder of Transmit Failure comments: When it comes to security, I have a personal motto: Think maliciously, act responsibly. I really enjoy trying to manipulate clients, exploiting behavior and finding ways to prevent it in the “real world”. Great post about the AirTight WIPS presentation from Wireless Field Day 6.
